Samsung enters the DSLR fray
If you’ve always had a passion for photography and you still don’t have the gear to pursue it, now is probably the best time to get one. Prices of digital SLRs are at an all-time low especially if you know where to look, and the competition is about to get even more heated as Samsung unveils their own SLR to battle it out with the big boys in the local scene. The GX-20 is a 14.6-megapixel SLR that supports Live View via its large 2.7-inch LCD display. It also has a built-in Optical Anti-shake function which is similar to how the Canon IS and Nikon VR lenses work except that this time it’s part of the camera and not the lens. Maintenance is kept at a minimum with its Dual Dust Removal function that keeps the image sensor clean at all times. One of the best and more unique qualities that I like about this SLR is that it’s also dust and water resistant which means no more worrying when the rain suddenly starts to pour. This is perfect for those who love the great outdoors. Unfortunately, due to Samsung's choice of the Pentax KAF2 mount, lens choice and availability is somewhat limited considering we are a Canon and Nikon dominated nation. But who’s to say in the next couple of years, right? Maybe if this becomes successful enough, then we might see a wider and more diverse camera industry flourish in the years to come. Price and availability is yet to be determined. Thanks to Fritzified for this bit of news.
